WELCH, W.Va. (AP) - A robbery suspect tried to hide his face
with a pair of underwear but the disguise didn't fool witnesses.
Police arrested 40-year-old Jerry Keene and 48-year-old
Elizabeth Blankenship, both of English, a short time after the pair
allegedly robbed the Hillbilly Market in English Tuesday night.
McDowell County sheriff's Chief Deputy Mark Shelton says
Blankenship went into the convenience store and then left. Keene
then entered, concealing his face with the underwear, allegedly
showed a gun and demanded money.
Shelton says witnesses identified the suspect, despite the
Blankenship and Keene were each charged with armed robbery. They
were being held Wednesday night at the McDowell County Holding
